This light and bright space in central-city gem Riverside Market is the place to come together and learn about the best of Canterbury’s seasonal produce.
You then learn to cook with it and share your creations around a beautiful handcrafted table right in the heart of the city. Kirsten Fox, a former lawyer and passionate foodie, created Riverside Kitchen directly above Riverside Market’s busy farmers’ market. With a full-time chef, Riverside Kitchen hosts product demonstrations, wine and food tastings, book launches and private dinner parties, cooking classes and much more. “We want to create a space that anyone can enjoy, from dedicated foodies to those who would prefer to watch us cook over a glass of wine. Being located directly above the market is a dream come true, as guests can tour the market with us, meet the producers and growers and then pop upstairs to watch the magic happen,” Kirsten says.
